Lucy Li Is The Youngest U.S. Open Competitor, And Has Some Serious Style Sense As Well

Red, white, and blue seems like an appropriate color palette for the U.S. Open, and I'm clearly not the only one who's pro-patriotic wear. 11-year-old Lucy Li made history as the youngest competitor to qualify for the Women's Open, but I can't help but think she may be making history as the most stylish pre-teen around as well. Li's outfit of choice was an American flag shirt that incorporated hearts instead of stars paired with a matching red, white, and blue skirt that I wish came in my size. She was on her fashion A game and ended the first round of her golf game with a score of 78 — that's a good thing, for any non-golf experts out there. After they talked about her serious skills on the green, reporters questioned Li as to why she chose the colors she did for her outfit.

“Because it’s the U.S. Open,” she told reporters when asked about her fashion choice. “I like the red, white, and blue, too.” A great answer Li — it makes perfect sense to me. Li is a stylish and competitive player on the golf course, so, basically, she's already way cooler as a pre-teen than most of us will ever be in our entire lives. It's safe to say that this young fashionista is giving us some serious style envy.

While her patriotic ensemble has definitely gotten the most attention, it's not Li's only awesome look. Check out this fantastic, summer-y pink ruffled number:
